An Advent Of Gifts! Want A Free Subscription To The Nook Kits?

  • December 2, 2011 12:20 am

The gals at the Nook (Design team and friends) decided to do a fun Christmas Count down, and give away a prize on a different blog each day.  This Advent Calendar should be a fun way to check out some talented paper crafters and celebrate the friendship and festivities at the Nook.  Everyone is invited to participate (the more the merrier, so jump right in).  At the Nook Blog you can get a list of blog addresses, so you don’t miss out on a single chance to win a prize and be inspired.  I’m excited to follow along and see all the great ideas- and it starts today, so hop on over!

The calendar of days filled up quite quickly, but no one took Christmas Day!  I decided that the best way to remedy that little problem would be to take it myself, and give away a HUGE prize!

So, one lucky participant will win a three month subscription to My Scrapbook Nook Kits (Jan-Mar), and a runner up will walk away with the beautiful December kit!

To get an entry into this contest just leave me a comment on this post any time between now and Christmas, and I will announce a winner on Christmas Day.

If you would like an extra bit at the apple to increase your odds on walking away with a free subscription, you can facebook or tweet (once per day for the next 25 days- so 25 opportunities to win) a link to this post, inviting others to participate.  You may also blog about it or mention it at any other site where it would be appropriate to share.  Just leave me an extra comment for each, and please include your link.

The Nook is also running an exciting promotion right now with heavy discounts for gift subscriptions you may want to give to a loved one (or yourself!)  You can check those awesome deals out here.  It is the best deal we’ve offered all year, so if you plan on being crafty in 2012- I highly recommend checking out this sweet deal and making sure it gets on your wishlist!

Good luck to all those who enter!  And don’t forget to check out the rest of the Advent blogs and get entered to win those prizes!
